Alfa Mist on Indie Accent

Alfa Mist

b. - | ORIGIN: UNITED KINGDOM

Like most of his mates, when ?Alfa Mist was a teenager he was dabbling in hip-hop and grime. But by the time he got to college, he was teaching himself the piano and getting deeply into jazz. A serious change was afoot.
Growing up and still living in Newham, there’s a real sense of place in Mist’s moody music. “There’s something very distinctively London about the stuff I’m making now,” he says. “It’s to do with where I grew up. It’s not like LA; all sunny, crazy and happy.” Last year’s conceptual ‘Nocturne’ EP – which featured a run of guests, including ?Tom Misch, Barney Artist and Jordan Rakei – was a case in point. Made largely at night, it was concerned with the things people think about just before they fall asleep. “Problems you have, things you’re grateful for or unsure about – I tried to bring them all out,” he says. Alfa Mist is now working on a new, mainly instrumental project. “I’m trying to come into my own,” he explains. We can’t wait to see – and hear – him when he does.
